We benefitted from being the only two people at the lodge and found it such a haven of peace in the wilds. It is such a beautiful place, so close to nature. Our host, Mike, was so friendly and made us feel really at home. The game drives with Africa enabled us to see many of the big 5 and...

Apart from two guests on the first night, I had the camp to myself and I could game gaze from the shade of the big old thorn tree in the garden. Olivia, the...

We saw it all! Giraffes and water buffalo came to drink right in front as did the Elon. Great accommodations and food and Olivia was the best hostess! Our 2.5 year old had a blast! We stayed in the Elephant house and it was super! Had its own little fridge. Game drive is a must.
